|Alternative Title||First line of text: Before you get married your sweetheart is your sweetheart to the dot|
VERSE 01: Before you get married your sweetheart is your sweetheart to the dot,/ But after you marry your sweetheart, girls,/ Becomes your sweetheart not,/ Of course there are many exceptions/ To most ev'ry rule, but then/ In this very case, any time, any place,/ Eleven times out of ten.
CHORUS: After the honeymoon,/ After the honeymoon,/ There's millions of women and millions of men,/ Who'd give half their lives to be sweethearts again./ After it's Mr. and Mrs./ There's often a year between kisses,/ A sweet wedding cake only gives you an ache,/ After the honeymoon.
VERSE 02: Before your engagement you want your love to stand and stand around,/ But after the wedding it changes to,/ "For goodness sake sit down!"/ You want who you want in the summer,/ You get who you want in the fall,/ But after you've got who you wanted,/ It's not the one whom you wanted at all.
